7:02 am
8 am. the coldest temperatures are right now. 20s for many 30s all the way to san jose i mean 20s on the peninsula, novato is at 26. temperatures are running a little bit colder for some and everyone is pretty close but 20s in the east bay won the creek is 26. rent what an antioch -- brentwood and antioch are in the upper 20s. and, one side menlo park to palo alto, it's also close for others as you might imagine. and, it is staying to the north and mostly sunny. that will do it. and the east bay is still a bear ? yes, there was a deadly accident on 680 for the start of the morning commute. a trot -- it smashed into a freeway sign and that shut down for lanes of traffic which
7:03 am
snarled traffic but chp has reopened some lanes. and, i do want to ask you, how many lanes of traffic are getting by at the moment? >> so what we have are the to write lanes shut down southbound 680 at right that's right before you get there. that is causing an incredible backup. it extends all the way up into pleasant hill. and i know you're going to talk a little bit more about the backup from this and the ripple effect for commuters here in the east bay. let me talk to about the accident itself. just found out from chp the man who is driving this delivery truck here was killed in this accident he died at the hospital a short time ago they did everything that they could to save him. he did die a short time ago after slamming his truck into his freeway sign. and, the mess that result to copy content of that truck
7:04 am
hundreds of holiday packages all still here onto the side of the road. let me show you what this accident look like what happened earlier this morning. >> it is brought -- wrapped around the pole. >> you can see firefighters are on the scene shortly after 3 am. it was a desperate attempt to first of all try to rescue the driver run the test -- of this truck. it was -- it was pinned right against this freeway sign. and they had to do a careful extrication of the driver who was taken to a nearby hospital. again, he could not be saved. we understand that this truck does not belong to the united states postal service it was a delivery truck that was carrying postal service packages here. for some reason, the driver veered off of the road. and it actually hit an abandoned minivan. then, we talked about it with
7:05 am
the sergeant. over the complicated cleanup that has to be done. because you have all of these past us postal service. >> you have a postal inspector here on scene after speaking with him it appears as though it is not a postal service truck. they are postal service packages. and, he has advised that it's probably incoming mail to san jose. >> so obviously, the postal inspector and postal service are going to have to deal with all these packages here and what they are going to do is to get at least one truck possibly two trucks out here and they are going to load all of these packages probably thousands and load them into a couple of other different trucks and get them where they need to be. we will bring you back out here live to a picture. the other complicated part is trying to tell the trailer out of the way. this is the damaged trailer all
7:06 am
those packages were inside and you can see that we have a tow truck at the scene. they are beginning the process of telling the truck out of the way and you need to get those postal service trucks here to pick up all these packages. and again in the meantime to reiterate, the to write lanes of southbound 680 shut down right before you come up to open title drive. the traffic is an absolute math -- mess. it will be a problem probably for the next couple of hours. >> all right. thank you. i also want to mention just to reiterate backup, let's go to the maps. southbound 680 is backed up from conquered all the way down to danville where this accident is. people have been using highway 24 and there are a lot of other problems that i want to get to hear in the traffic report. let's go down to the south bank were on the lawrence expressway accident at this avenue there is an accident that happened here and a woman in a
7:07 am
wheelchair was being hit and killed. by an automobile here. lawrence expressway, you need to avoid the area because of an investigation is going on. elsewhere, the commute isn't bad but the expressway is not where you want to be. there are a lot of police and other investigators on that scene. let's move along and take a look at highway 17. it could be a top drive. there has been black ice. people are blaming that a couple of accidents. and, people lost control and it is hard to see black ice that's why it is so dangerous. now, let's move along to one more thing. this is a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. traffic is backed up all the way to the macarthur maze. it's not lighter than usual. and i think that we are going to add this, or be adding this? because there is an accident southbound 280.
7:08 am
and, there is an accident that is effecting traffic leaving san francisco. if you're trying to get out of the city i would not use 280 there is an accident at 101 and coming up soon we will have video for that. thank you. we are following developing news from the south bay. they're trying to attract on whoever is responsible for a deadly shooting. >> it happened late last night near winchester boulevard. janine dela vega has been out there all morning. it is the latest information? >> they still have the road blocked off it happened right in front of a mobil gas station. this is right across the street from a 7-eleven on winchester and we just spoke with the clerk and he told us that he had heard one gunshot. he said he didn't see anyone running or driving away but it is frightening because he said it was so close to him. police were called here near hamilton just before midnight
7:09 am
and found a man on the ground at the mobil gas station suffering from a gunshot wound. a man at the scene were identified himself as a stepfather says he was 18. they say that he was shot in the head and he died at the hospital. they say that the gas station was open at the time and they are interviewing the attendant. they've also gone door-to-door looking for anyone who may have seen or heard what happened. >> we are in the pulmonary stages of our investigation trying to find witnesses in surveillance video anything that may help us to determine what has happened out here. >> the police are working on trying to figure out whether there was one or multiple suspects. they do not have descriptions or a motive for the shooting. this pocket of the city is known for gang activity and police are looking into the possibility that shooting maybe gang-related. it is the city's 46th homicide of the year. last year's total was 30. southbound winchester is closed
7:10 am

flights all over the country leaving passengers stranded. the denver post reports that frontier canceled 200 fights nationwide yesterday because of a winter storm and that includes some bay area flights. this morning one man told us that his family was stranded last night and they had to reschedule their entire vacation. >> my father is 90 my father just had a heart attack i rebooked us rebooked my flights and i came here and for three hours we waited. after three hours they told us that the flights have canceled. we waited another two or three hours to rebook ourselves. >> they say that two flights were canceled today once orlando and one to chicago. frontier airlines posted a message on facebook offering refunds for those flights. the airline >> -- the airline released a statement saying that they had been impacted by the snow in denver.

7:13 am
7:14 am
today is the day that 538 electors will gather at their state capitol and cast their
7:15 am
vote. a group of women opposed to donald trump protested the state capitol in sacramento. another protests is scheduled for today. they are pledged to vote for hillary clinton who won the state by a margin of 4 million votes. people of donald trump have launched a movement trying to convince electors to vote for a republican other than trump. their goal is to sweep someone else into office. >> i don't know what i'm going to do. i may vote for secretary. clinton or i may vote for a republican that the 37 republican electors would want me to vote for. >> 37 electors would have to switch their vote to keep donald trump from getting the required number of electoral votes. if it happened it would be up to the house of representatives to pick the president on the top three votes. analysts say that flipping the election is unlikely 29 states have laws that require them to vote for the candidate who won in their state.
7:16 am
donald trump took to twitter ahead of the vote he said if my supporters acted in threatened people like those who lost the election are doing, they would be scorned and called terrible names. here at home, musicians and artists who lost friends in the tragedy came together honoring those victims and using the power of music. the >> [music] now, the musical tributes lasted for hours. they were -- oakland's chapel of the times. one singer came honoring one of the 36 people who died. >> it's lovely. they were a lovely human beings. just beautiful. very quiet but super talented. really talented. if you haven't heard the record
7:17 am
i've been listening to it nonstop and crying. some of the people who were at the memorial escape the flames of the fire disaster earlier this month. it is 7:17 am. it's been a messy morning on the roads today let's go back out to sow. -- let's go back out to sal castaneda . >> yes, you have a deadly accident that happened on 680 southbound. southbound 682, lanes are blocked in traffic is very slow approaching the scene. we still have those two lanes blocked it has been blocked going on for hours now it happened that 330 or so and we are coming up at 730. the traffic is backed up barely moving. it's one of those mornings where if you have discretion you don't have to go right now. but a lot of people have to go. let me go to these maps it's backed up at 242 and it is solid.
7:18 am
and some people have been using less than 24 that's a little bit more crowded. some other trouble here on the lawrence expressway which is right here just north of the el camino out riau. there is a deadly auto pedestrian accident there. and, that is a good area to avoid. avoid the expressway because of the accident. we also have a problem in san francisco. let's see if i can get my maps to cooperate. go to san francisco and, owing to talk about -- images talk about this on camera because it is southbound 280 at highway 101 and this is a gravel spell with a truck ask -- gravel spell with -- spill with a truck accident. so, the 101 in the 280 are both
7:19 am
affected by this accident. and, it does look like it will be there for a little while. they have called for a hard closure of the area we have three major problems to deal with on this commute. let's go back to steve with today's weather which is very cold. >> i think that we have a winner on temperatures but i am not surprised. temperatures it is clear this morning. and the coldest temperatures are right now. and a few high clouds are coming in overall, it's going to change the pattern a little bit going into tuesday wednesday and thursday. those high temperatures will warm up. they will still be cold. let's take you up to lake county. it is 18 and morgan valley. it is hard to see that this looks to be a little bit blurry. it's just shy of 20. and in morgan hill, ice on the
7:20 am
windshield. i believe that. and felton cost santa cruz mountains, 25. sonoma, that's near the district. that is really cold for them. and, you get closer to the bay and that's impressive. i have seen all of that all around. and campbell to reports 27 and 29. there are many 20s. and santa rosa nevada take your pick. palo alto. many on the peninsula. it will take a look. and by 8 pm best buy 8 am we bounce off those freeze warnings. and some locations are running colder than yesterday others are about the same. fairfield is -7. petaluma, glen allen, 32 nevada 32 mill valley although there are colder readings not far away from some of those observers.
7:21 am
santa clara valley, gilroy, 20s 32. and i did see a 24 on one observation. 27 santa clara. >> that's cold.>> mostly clear. a few clouds to the north. this will not do much. 50s on your temperatures. the days, they are very short now. even if you had about 55 it won't last very long we will plunge right back tomorrow but i think that we get more in the way of a cloud deck so it will still be cold. daytime highs will warm up. rain moves in the day before christmas and the day after but not on the day. >> that's good timing. >> we hope. >> holding you to it. >> it is in. >> thank you. 7:21 am. and you may like your morning coffee even more because of a new study that we are going to

7:31 am
beginning to have a big impact leaving san francisco on either freeway if you know some of the side roads i would suggest this morning going out of your way to avoid the interchange because it is really getting slower and slower as the morning wears off. another problem, on the lawrence expressway at munro both directions are really affected but there was a pedestrian accident. and that pedestrian has died. avoid the lawrence expressway near highway 82. this is actually near cabrillo. that whole area is an area that should be avoided. another big accident, that we have been following. it continues after the deadly accident on 680 and danville. alex savage has been life on that scene -- live on that scene. are there still a couple of lanes closed? >> reporter: yes, the to write lanes are still closed.
7:32 am
we have a tow truck -- the to write lanes -- right lanes are still close. we have a tow truck that we are waiting on. and, the postal service is going to be loading up all of these packages. they were thrown across the shoulder of the freeway here after this early morning accident. they also build out of the delivery truck when it slammed into the freeway sign early this morning. it all happened about 3:30 am along southbound 680 coming up. take a look at the sce this morning. >> yes, i need rescue. i need both of them. >> it was a desperate attempt to try to save the life of the driver of this delivery driver. he was trapped inside the cab of the truck which was pinned up against this freeway sign after this very serious accident.
7:33 am
the driver ultimately was extricated pulled out of the is that truck and taken to a -- of the cab of the truck and taken to hospital. it happened around 3:30 am. for some reason, the driver lost control and eclipse and abandon -- he lost control and clipped beside of a freeway sign. and, hundreds of holiday packages spilled out onto the side of the road. i talked to the chp sergeant. about what may have caused the driver to lose control. >> it's hard to say without -- obtaining a statement. that's exactly what occurred. it will have to be based on physical evidence when we conclude the investigation. the officers are investigating that right now. >> reporter: and again, this truck is a delivery truck, a contract company that is working in conjunction with the
7:34 am
united states postal service. it was delivering postal service packages and this truck and all of these packages. apparently they were all heading down to the san jose postal distribution facility when the driver lost control again and spilled his load. the driver of the truck lost his life. he was taken to hospital where he died. i have no information on the driver at this point. and obviously, they are investigating exactly what caused the accident. but still, we do have the to write lanes southbound 680 still remaining closed for this investigation and the cleanup. and traffic is backed up for miles all the way back up into a pleasant hill area. so a major mess out here. >> in fact, i'm going to say what the backup is. what it looks like for walnut creek. it's at a dead stop at 680. it's going to be very slow out
7:35 am
of concord. and, heading down to the accident scene which is as alex mentioned just past the road. we're going to keep an eye on this and all the other problems. now, let's go to steve who is in the weather center. >> thank you. getting right to it it is clear and cold. we have seen a couple of teens many 20s. it is just -- there's ice all over. be careful. there is black ice as well. and, that's a tough morning to get out and roll. let's get to it really quick. alexander, great to see you at the show. happy monday from the house of rock crew. yes, thank you everybody in santa rosa. by the way, the opening act here, you young fellows keep doing what you're doing is you are very good.
7:36 am
and, the original stuff is really good. thanks to everyone. that was a cool place. what did they opened with? >> food for the city. >> i'm done now. >> but they also played stone blue. and, antonio, there is ice in daly city. a low of 36 and there are many 20s. and 28 in brentwood. and frost and freeze warnings are out only for about another 24 minutes. even in san francisco many reports of ice and most locations are close to where they were yesterday or even below 20s. and the peninsula is 27 and atherton is 29. except for a few higher clouds the will be good to go for mostly sunny skies unless you're well to the north. then, 50s on the temperatures, lower to middle at best. it does look like tomorrow and
7:37 am
the next few days. the high temperatures will warm up. but i think that rain returns on christmas eve. in all right. -- >> all right. thank you. it is not officially winter until wednesday. but it feels and it looks like winter all ready. freezing rain and heavy snow cause several car crashes. and more than 1400 slides. because of the bad weather. one woman who moved from texas to wisconsin said this is the first time that she has experienced snow at her new home. >> since 2005, this is my second time seeing it's no but it is a lot of snow. >> yes. a lot of snow and it makes everything difficult. >> all that snow is too much for the roof of an indiana restaurant that collapsed. it sends customers running into the cold. subzero temperatures didn't stop fans from coming out to
7:38 am
support their team. and they didn't let the cold waters -- cold-weather stop them . the coldest one on record was eight years ago. that day the temperature was too degrees. it was a -- two it was a -- 2 degrees. it was eight yesterday. they say that it makes it really difficult to tailgate. >> we are starting and thursday. we can't eat or drink because everything is frozen pick >> i have heat warmers in my hands, back pocket, shoes. feeling good. >> and, they may have not been feeling so good after the game. they lost to green bay 30 to 27. and all of the cold-weather may perfect conditions for skiers. >> really? >> yes. at the kirkwood ski resort there is packed powder. and, over the next few days it
7:39 am
has dumped between 6 to 8 inches of snow. and while it is cold, it is nowhere near as bad as other parts of the country. -- it's also why our cost of living is so high. that brings us to our question of the day. here is the question, would you rather own house in blizzard territory or rent a home in sunny california? let us know what you think by posting a comment on her facebook page. you can also always tweet us. we will stay -- stay out of the oakland estuary, a warning because of untreated sewage. a combination of heavy rain in the low tide during the storm allowed the untreated sewage to get out of the sewage treatment plant. the area of concern is a pipe that they had just east of jaclyn and square. electronic monitors show polluted water had it
7:40 am
contaminating the estuary twice last week. >> it is also -- a kind of caught the crown jewel of oakland. it should be very concerned with keeping it pristine. >> it is a shame. i brought my children down here to get fresh air and see the water. so that's a little bit disconcerting. >> we just saw that the boat is out there this morning minutes ago. >> officials won't have an accident on just how much raw sewage has escaped into the estuary. the san jose water department is trying to fix the water main. it is 150 years old it broke yesterday morning. it caused a mass. -- mess. they expect to have that 12 inch pipe replaced before lunchtime today. happening today, volkswagen must say if it has reached a
7:41 am
final deal. they still want to reach a settlement with federal regulators and attorneys for 80,000 diesel powered cars. he had our to work out a deal with cars at a smaller engine and were programmed to cheat on admissions test. owners of those cars can either have been paper system repairs or to buy back their cars. the federal judge in the case of last week's optimistic a similar deal could be worked out for the 3 l engine. today is expected to be the busiest mailing day of the year. people who spent last weekend before christmas out there shopping they will be lining up at post offices around the country to get those get in the mail. the postal service expects to take in 658 million packages cards and letters today and they say that their busiest delivery day will be thursday. san francisco's long legal
7:42 am
battle may be coming to an end. up next, the terms of the settlement that we are learning about. first, a serious case of road rage that is taking -- that has taken a little boy's life.

8:20 am
this happened at the interchange and the ramps from 280 to 101 are closed and traffic in both directions is very slow as they clean up that spell. the actual gravel is where i put the indicator and that is why those ramps are closed. and, these are both getting in and out of san francisco. we still have the truck accident in danville. and this is blocking the to write lanes. it has been there since 3:30 am. it was a deadly accident. the driver did not survive. southbound all the way down into danville has been very slow. now, fortunately we are getting a little bit of a break. i am beginning to see some of the volume get a little bit lighter and this commute is still terrible. this is a look at the bay bridge and you can see for yourself traffic has lightened up. and on the golden gate bridge, traffic looks good and also in

8:32 am
it has been very slow. we have seen more slow traffic and i want to talk about one of the worst ones in the bay area and that would be on interstate 682 through danville. a deadly truck accident killed -- closed most of 680. alex savidge is there and says it's taking a lot longer than usual to pick up. dust >> reporter: -- >> reporter: yes, a complicated cleanup process because inside of this delivery truck there were hundreds of packages and so they were all strewn across the wide of the freeway so you have to get folks to come in and the logos onto another truck. and, this accident happened earlier this morning. a delivery truck driver veered off the road and slammed into a freeway sign. they were able to pull the driver out but he died later at the hospital.
8:33 am
take a look at the scene. >> i need -- >> this is what things look like 3:30 am. firefighters were working to free the driver of the truck who was trapped inside of the cab. the was pinned up against this freeway sign. the truck lost control as it was coming southbound on 680 coming up to alpine tonto. after a veered off, it's sideswiped and abandoned minivan that was sitting on the side of the road when the truck crashed into the freeway sign. and the driver was in the end rescued at the cab of the truck and taken to the local hospital. but that is where he later died. we talked with them about why the clean up here at the scene is going to be so complex. >> we have to -- we have the postal inspector on scene after speaking with him, it appears
8:34 am
as though it is not a postal service truck but they are postal service packages and he advised that it's probably incoming to san jose. >> and, all of these packages were heading down to the postal service distribution facility in san jose. so most of these packages a lot of holiday gift are going to be shipped out. and distributed around santa clara county according to the postal inspector so we will bring you back out live to this picture. they have been able to move the truck and trailer out of the way. that process now begins where the postal service is coming in with another truck and they have workers here that they are going to try to load all of these packages onto the other derivatively truck. -- delivery truck. in the meantime, the chp tells me that they will likely have at least the far right lanes of
8:35 am
southbound 680 shut down. right now the to right lanes are closed so we may have at least one lane shut down southbound 680 coming up to hear. i'd venture to say, at least the next hour or so we are not getting any sort of estimate on the exact time of the closure. >> yes. and you know what traffic is backed up all the way up from willow pass road. that is a long backup because of that accident. >> ink you very much for reporting live. we have had so many people in frustration sending me tweets. i know that you will be in a lot of slow traffic but it will be that way for a while. let's take a look at the bay bridge. this may make you happy if you go to the bay bridge. it has cleared out. and more of this as we get to that final stretch to christmas. the time and people take a lot of time off surrounding the holiday and this weekend likely

8:37 am
the woodside was. and, it will be mostly sunny today. and the system is staying to the north. it looks like our next hint of rain will be in the 50s. let's send it back to the desk. people from detroit to denver say that it all feels like winter even though the change of season doesn't technically happen until wednesday. heavy snow freezing rain and subzero temperatures are causing car accidents. more than 1400 airline flights have been canceled. and the weather service is predicting more below number of -- normal temperatures. washington oregon idaho and montana are also in line for heavy rain and snow. subzero temperatures didn't stop chicago bears fans. they were all bundled up and said that they were not going to let a little bit of cold weather stop them cheering on the bears. there were fewer harold --
